El Fatah Arms Found in Arab Home;
Nablus Mayor Views the Evidence

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV — Mayor Hamdi
Kanaan of Nablus was escorted
by the military governor Tuesday
to the house of a prominent local
merchant where two El Fatah
arms caches were discovered Mon-
day. The mayor was invited to
view the evidence before the build-
ing was demolished by the Israeli
Although the house was blown
up by the Israel army Tuesday,
intervention of Mayor Kanaan
saved a second house from de-
struction. This building, belonging
to an .E1 Fatah suspect, Ahmed
Hodhod, was saved when the
mayor appealed to the defense
minister. He pointed out that while
Hodhod's relatives lived in one
part of the building, the other part
was sublet to third parties who
were innocent of El Fatah con-
Mayor Kanaan was told by De-
fense Minister Gen. Moshe Dayan
three days ago that the army
would continue to destroy houses
belonging to or used by terrorists.
But he was promised that he would
be told in advance of such action.
The mayor was unsuccessful in
his call for a general strike last
week to protest - the Israeli demo-

lition policy. Later he and 10
councillors were persuaded by
Gen. Dayan to retract his resigna-
Dayan warned Kanaan that the
military government would not
take over municipal services and
activities in Nablus should the
mayor and councillors resign.
He promised the mayor, how-
ever, that an unrestricted policy
of travel to and from Jordan
would be adopted toward Nablus
residents if they avoid involvement
with terrorists. Gen Dayan sug-
gested that the mayor's resignation
be put to a popular vote. The re-
sult was hundreds of petitions re-
ceived in the town hall urging him
to retract his resignation.

Argentine Jewry Probes
Problems of Orthodox

BUENOS AIRES—The religious
problems of Argentine Jews, at
least among those who observe the
Orthodox traditions, occupied the
attention of, the eighth annual con-
ference of the Federation of Ar-
gentine Jewish Communities Mon-
day. The session heard from Is-
rael's minister for religious af-
fairs, Dr. Zerach Warhaftig a n d
from Chief Rabbi David Kahane of
According to Dr. Kahane, t h e
main problem stems from the lack
of religious leaders. There are only
15 rabbis in Argentina and two
rabbinical seminaries, he said. He
deplored the performance of wed-
dings in the provinces of "unau-
thorized" persons who, he said,
ignored the injunctions of Halakha,
Jewish law.
He said that this resulted in
many complicated situations when
the marriages couldn't be annulled.
He also said "unauthorized" con-
versions would not be recognized
by the Orthodox establishment in
Israel if the couple was to move
there. He urged provincial leaders
to avoid carrying out unauthorized
conversions but said children of
these marriages must be given
"reasonable" status.
Rabbi Kahane noted that Ar-
entine Jewry was mostly of East
ropean origin. He decried


odifications from Orthodoxy" in
CM United States which, he al-
leged, increased assimilation.
